For those of you interested in the final outcome of #GiveMe5 for the Skatepark yesterday, here are the results:

63 donations were made totalling £425 + £73.75 Gift-Aid = £498.75.

58 of the donations were eligible for #GiveMe5 (some were early, late or not £5) and of those 11 were matched by Local Giving = £55.

So the total amount raised was £553.75, less fees, which won't be clear until all donations are processed and paid but I estimate will be around £15 to £20.

The final sum will be worth double thanks to the council match-funding, so around £1,070 against the total project budget of £100,000.

Thank you everyone who supported us and has helped us break through the £10K to go barrier (approximately £9,760 left to go I think).

Of course the Appeal page itself will remain live until we reach our target : https://localgiving.org/appeal/marpleskatepark/

So far today we've had 28 backers on our Appeal page and 10 on the Skate Jam page, donating a total of £338.75 including Gift Aid towards the project. This means that once payments come through we'll have broken through the £10,000 to go barrier.

Thank you everyone who has donated to our appeals today!

There's still time for more #Giveme5 donations, and of course people can continue to donate via these pages until we reach our final target. Your contributions will always be worth DOUBLE to the project!

We look forward to seeing you at Marple Carnival: https://localgiving.org/fundraising/marple-skatepark-jam

Friends of Marple Memorial Park are taking part in Localgiving's #GiveMe5 campaign.

On Thursday 16th June 2016 Localgiving will be matching 1000 x £5 donations to mark this year’s Small Charity Week.

The campaign is open for 24 hours on Thursday 16th.
All £5 donations have the same chance of being matched.
At the end of the 24 hours, 1,000 donations will be randomly selected to benefit from an additional £5 of match funding.
Successful donors will be notified within 3 working days.

Every £5 given on the day will have a big impact as it will also be worth double thanks to our Council Match-funding.
